The Global Solutions Summit

The annual Global Solutions Summit held by the Global Solutions Initiative brings together international research organizations, thought-leaders and decision-makers from across political, business and civic communities. Our next summit will take place on March 18-19, 2019 in Berlin.

Some 1,600 participants from various sectors and 120 countries have registered for the summit so far. Here they will meet with our 221 speakers and participate in the 60 sessions.

The summit aims to provide policy recommendations on major G20 issues, thereby serving as a stepping stone to the Japanese T20 Summit in May 2019 and the Japanese G20 Summit in June 2019. The Global Solutions Summit 2019 is a T20 Japan associated event.

The Global Solutions Summit 2019 will focus on the priorities of the Japanese G20 Presidency, including policy recommendations on sustainable development, infrastructure finance, financial architecture, trade and investment, climate change, future of work and education, social cohesion and the future of politics, SME policy, policies for aging populations, and more. All discussions will be linked to the overarching narrative of recoupling economic, environmental and social progress. We will furthermore highlight all relevant issues for the future of multilateralism and strengthen the implementation site in our discussions.


In times when international cooperation to deal with global issues is under severe strain, we hope that you will participate in this unique meeting of global problem solvers at the Global Solutions Summit 2019. To take part, please register here.
